MFW Trump gets transposed to a place where building walls used to be official government policy.
Also, wouldn't it make more sense for *Trump to be a Protestant and member of the DUP, since they're considered the more right-wing major party in Norn Iron?
Well I felt that would be too easy a 'punch' to make - plus the Shinners are also known for inciting violence a bit like the Donald - plus his party shifts replicate his OTL shifts all over the place. Plus he can now promote hardline nationalism in its entirety.
U Mor is also a rough translation of big-ly into Irish as well.
"Wait, Sinn Féin? He's a Republican, why would Trump be Si— (exhale) Of course…"
The 2016 US election, with popular votes proportionally (to the best of my ability) transferred into seats won in the UK.
Placing 21st-century politicians in this scenario. Loads of in-jokes; can you find them?
That's quite an interesting map...
"My fellow Irish Catholics, we are gonna start winning soooo much that you will be sick and tired of winning. MAKE IRELAND GREAT AGAIN."
American Erdogan, Canadian Trump, Cameroonian Condi Rice, Irish Mike Pence
How about a Russian Sarah Palin?
"I can see America from my dacha!"
Those are some rather... interesting party conversations.
Do you mean "conversions?"
Yes, was on a phone.
I just converted US parties to whatever their closest UK counterparts were. UKIP doesn't really have a major counterpart in the States, so I just chose to use Constitution.
It's not just UKIP, it's also the Liberal Democrats- neither make much sense on an analogy level because UKIP is not a Socially Conservative Christian Right Paleoconservative party, and the LibDems aren't, well, Libertarians. Better analogies would have been, for Constitution, the Christian Party, and the Libertarians, either UKIP itself or the Libertarian Party.
On a proportional level, the Christian and Libertarian (UK) parties don't get the votes that would make them comparable to the Constitution and Libertarian (US) parties. The infobox was more about showing vote-to-seat ratios rather than accurately attributing US parties to their UK counterparts.
American Kim il-Sung!
